Clearly, the birds roaming in our backyard have no idea that turkey day is only a week away.
3 games were played on Saturday and 1 game on Sunday. The team gathered in a room where they were each fitted with a foam board attached to the back with their name and number. Light and dark jerseys depict the "home" or "away" team for each match. Chris adds the front "plate" to Cam's power chair, while other kids are transferred into a lower chair designed for power soccer. Cam's dad also set up a table for Lori's Voice, one of the sponsors for the tournament.
The experience with the Overdrive team promotes friendships and inclusion. Each member has some type of physical challenge. They are all excited to be a part of a sport with kids ranging in age from first grade through adulthood. We knew Cam was having a good time since he opted to have lunch with his teammates instead of going out to dine somewhere. It definitely was a bonus that the food was from Chick-Fil-A!
Cameron definitely comes up with some crazy phrases. Every week or so, he requests assistance from his mom to trim his nails. He has a reference for when they are ready to be cut.
"Mom, these nails are crispy!"
What does that mean, Cam?
"It means they are overdone!"
